Morning Larks,

Hope you had a good weekend.

A lovely bright sunny day here pleased the severe winds have passed a bit, quite chilly still though. Another line of laundry just hung out... chores.!

No plans for today apart from a small grocery shop and walks later again with Patch.

Daughter is quite poorly at the moment, she had 2 teeth extracted last week and unfortunately had to ring 111 at the weekend and see an emergency dentist who told her she has a very bad infection in jaw and mouth.

Let us know how Sparry is Fennie, no hawk pics but have posted Mr Foxy instead.Very HappyLinked Image

Fennie's Avatar Yes I did post but itv was on the post below so let's put a new post here.

Faith and Camilla, thanks but I do not know. I am not so practical as some. I have silly visions of him recovering and wearing jesses and flying to a lure and hovering around the house eating the spiders and maybe the odd pork scratching or chippolata. But this isn't likely to be the case. The likelihood is that he will die - he has already bashed his wing again. It's a learning curve for me - getting him to trust me. He's come out of his box now (maybe that was a mistake and now he is sitting on the floor of the utility room glowering with Mrs May impressions. But I talk to him and I sense he becomes less tense. I have now idea whether his wing hurts him or no or whether a vet could tie it up in a splint. I can't let him loose with my flock of sparrows and I am not sure that he would necessarily get on with Theo's lovebird Purkey if the two ever met. But they each have beaks sharper than razors, so you never know. Like cats and budgies that you see in funny cat (or funny budgie) movies.

It doesn't help that I have put my back out and can't bend down. Twisted I am the way you'd get a squint in your eye just to look at me as someone said once. I am reduced to hobbling and ministering to Starry on my knees. I wouldn't trust myself to drive at the moment, a spasm of pain and I might do more damage than a squadron of sparrowhawks in a bat colony. That is if I could get into the car in the first place. So vets and wild life refuges are out and old Yellow Legs will just have to take his chances. Equally. I have cancelled my French class tomorrow. No way of getting there. But such is life's rich tapestry. What otherwise would there be to say on Purple Coo? Very HappyVery Happy

Camilla's Avatar Hi Fennie,

So sorry to hear about your poorly shoulder Fennie, keep an eye on it you may have pulled a muscle badly and need to take it easy.

On the question of the Hawk Fennie you don't have to drive or do anything just RING the RSPCA and ask to be put through to the wildlife on birds of prey tell them what's happened and they will come round to your house and take the bird and look after him so he can recover there he does need a special diet of mice Fennie his gut won't be able to tolerate any certain foods you have . I fear the Hawk will die Fennie if you don't ring them hope you won't take offence you have done a wonderful thing in rescuing the bird but the bird needs to be at RSPCA where they can look after him .

Camilla's Avatar I would keep trying the number I gave you Fennie someone will eventually answer your call ask them to collect the Hawk and give them your address other than that you don't have to drive or do anything.
